Subject: Solid, Workmanlike, Get Yer Money's Worth
After years of touring with the Dead, I grew to enjoy shows of this era, not out of a resigned sense of diminished expectations (compared to '74-'82), but in appreciation of the really firmly-grounded musicianship and tight ensemble play that characterized this period. This seemed
to be a deliberately targeted effect by the boys,
who have obviously explored radically different aspects of their musical persona over the years.
It was something of a relief to attend shows where the objective wasn't necessarily an exhausting whirlwind tour of the Universe, but instead a sharp and precise expression of their
musical powers and technical acumen.
Subject: Great set, Good Show
As far as early 80's show go you really can't beat this set list. The playing is good, nothing too daring or spacey. Just a good ol' country rock first set, and some solid monsters 2nd set. Plus you can't bet the soundboard recording! I'm really surprised this show has not been downloaded more.
Subject: Great sound
This is a great sounding SBD. Thanks LMA
